Governor Rick Perry faced hecklers in the nation’s capitol Friday. They are upset with the governor’s opposition to expanding Medicaid.
Perry was addressing the Texas State Society Club in Washington D.C. when at least four people interrupted his speech to express their disapproval of the governor’s stance.
Despite mounting political pressure, Perry says he will not expand Medicaid. He argues that doing so would be too costly.
If medicaid were extended in the Lone Star State, as many as a million more uninsured Texans could qualify for coverage.
